Tenn, and NW Ga are getting it with no grease....All I need is a half inch to get my through the fall....Any body else almost scalping yards again????....I have been cutting all my lawns down to 1.5 inches...all but those that are being watered and are still looking good...still trying to cut those at over 3 inches just to keep the green on them......

    No rain here in Missouri since some time in July. We've got a 30% chance of t-storms tomorrow afternoon and evening, with a high of 100 degrees. Everything is dry and dusty. I've got two contracts on a military installation that require a minimum of two cuts per month. I made the first cuts the 2nd and 3rd of the month. I went out and checked today and they have not grown a bit, not even the weeds. Glad I don't have any equipment payments.

    Not only are things hot, dry and dieing, we had the third highest ozone level on record today (202) they told healthy people to stay inside until after sunset.

    It is getting pretty bad when you are a prisoner in your own house, we are killing our own environment.
